Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why Does Every Year Sound Different?

Sometimes the band sounds different from tour to tour , in the same year . Dave Lemieux mentions , for instance, the change from the Jan-Feb 78 shows, to the April 78 shows . Sometimes there was less change ( say, 93 - 95 ), but most of the time I think a seasoned listener could guess within a year or 2 , with a pretty good percentage .
This happened to me yesterday ! I quickly put on a disc from my stack , without seeing the date . Can hear Bruce...Vince, sound energetic , I would guess early in their run,..."Valley Road" ... Ok .. Late 90 . It was 12/13/90 .
